In the summer of 2016, Schlun & Elseven Lawyers opened its second office in the “Domstadt” of Cologne, a city famous around the world for the imposing building which dominates its skyline: the Cologne Cathedral. From Roman times, Cologne has been considered a metropolis and even today the remains of the impressive city wall and the Roman tower bear witness to the importance of the city of Cologne. Today, the Roman-Germanic Museum near Cologne Cathedral provides a great insight into the history of the city. However, Cologne’s importance only continued to grow as the centuries passed. Situated at the heart of North-Rhine Westphalia, Cologne had a strong interactions with the cities of modern-day Belgium and the Netherlands as well as other German cities and states. The Cologne Cathedral, in particular, whose construction began on 15 August 1248 and was only completed in 1880 after 600 years, illustrates the historical development and significance of the Rhine metropolis. This architectural wonder was crowned as a world cultural heritage. We are pleased to be able to offer our legal advice in such an important city.

Another passion of the people of Cologne is the ” Effzeh”, 1. FC Köln. The fans of Effzeh have a similarly strong bond with the club’s mascot, the billy goat Hennes. In terms of other sports, the city of Cologne also hosts many European handball events. Since the 2007 World Handball Championship Final, every year the final matches of the EHF Champions League take place at the Lanxess Arena, at the end of which the best European club team will be celebrated. When in Cologne another “must-see” is the “Kölner Haie” (“Cologne Sharks”); the ice hockey team. Also playing in the Lanxess Arena, a night with the Sharks is always an event worth attending.

During the so-called “fifth season”, Cologne is the heart of German carnival. Every year on 11.11. at 11:11 o’clock the “Jecken” inaugurate Cologne Carnival at the old market which is one of the world’s biggest street parties. Our law firm is located at Kyffhäuserstr. 45, in the so-called Kwartier Latäng, which is right in the middle of the action. During the street carnival, the people of Cologne celebrate this tradition with numerous guests from all over the world.

Despite all its madness, Cologne is one of the most important business locations in Germany. The connection to the Rhine and the proximity to the Ruhr area and the Benelux states have a high influence on the economic life of the city. Cologne is famous for its Ford factories, being some of the city’s largest employers. Moreover, the “Echt Kölnisch Wasser” (4711), which is now marketed by Mäurer & Wirtz GmbH in the Rhineland, plays an essential economic role.

In addition, Cologne is well known for its involvement in the media business. In addition to Westdeutscher Rundfunk, private television stations such as RTL, RTL 2 and VOX also have their headquarters in Cologne. Although the tv series plays in Munich, the classic German show “Lindenstraße” is filmed in Cologne.  Although game shows, which ask questions in many different topics, are filmed in Cologne, with respect to your legal questions you should contact our lawyers. The lawyers at our Cologne office will support you with their expertise in all legal questions and problems.

In addition, Cologne is home to countless trade fairs from all sectors of the industry; both in the fields of nutrition (Anuga), art and culture (Art Cologne) and gaming (GamesCom). Due to the trade fair location in Cologne, our law firm is regularly commissioned by international companies to draw up their relevant contracts. Furthermore, our lawyers regularly assist clients in trademark issues or competition disputes concerning trade fair exhibitions.

In academic opportunities, Cologne also has much to offer. The old university which was founded in 1388, is one of the oldest universities in Europe. The new university, which was founded on 29 May 1919 with the involvement of Konrad Adenauer, who was then the Mayor of the City of Cologne, now offers a home to almost 50,000 students. The University’s law faculty enjoys an excellent reputation throughout Germany. Furthermore, the Max-Planck-Society conducts various research projects in Cologne (institutes for social research, neurological research and plant breeding research).
